History of Secondary Highway 665:
Secondary Highway 665 is a local highway in the District of Kenora that serves as an access road from Highway 17 to the small community of Richan, located northwest of Dryden. The highway was created when Highway 119 was formally re-designated as a Secondary Highway by an Order-in-Council, effective August 7, 1974. Highway 119 was subsequently renumbered as Highway 665 in 1974. At first, only the southern section of Highway 665 was paved. It was not until 1987 that the gravel-surfaced sections at the northern end of the highway were finally paved. Unless posted otherwise, the speed limit on Highway 665 is 80 km/h (50 mph). There are no services available on this highway.
